By leaps and bounds, this is the most popular question from all my matches. I get this question at least twice a day. I’ve begun to think that people in relationships in my neck of the woods are yelling and arguing about personal space all the time. That, or that the questionnaire has determined that the best person for me is someone who is bothered by this issue. I don’t know what’s the bloody big deal!
The choices for this canned 1st question are:
A: I don’t have a great need for “personal space”. I like lots of together time.
B: I find my time spent working is enough personal time, the rest I like to spend with my partner.
C: As long as I can get one night a week to myself, my personal space needs are met.
D: When I’m with my partner I’m completely there, but I do need considerable time for personal reflection.
On the other hand, in eHarmony Blog’s twelve-week existence, no one has ever looked this question up with us. Our popular questions are “If I had a bad day…?” and “Tonight you can do anything you want…?” This one: Zero hits. What gives?!
This is my answer and it always works:
I hardly need personal space
